I am greatly struggling with related rates problems. I'll give an example and perhaps someone can walk me through it.
At noon, ship A is 70 km west of ship B. Ship A is sailing south at 25 km/h and ship B is sailing north at 15 km/h. How fast is the distance between the ships changing at 6:00 PM?
I don't even know where to begin really, according to my notes I should begin by writing down the given info and what I'm trying to find and drawing a picture of applicable, but after doing all this I still have no idea how to go about finding the answer. I know that da/dt would be 25 and db/dt would be 15, but I don't know how I would use that information at all. I also know that a triangle will be involved, but again I don't know how to use that information to solve this problem.
